Emily Jones, a third-grader at Coppell’s Town Center Elementary School, was so moved by recent media stories about children sleeping in Child Protective Services offices that she took action. After talking to her teachers and counselors at her school, Emily talked to every third grade class at her school about the issue, explaining why children were coming into protective care and the challenges they might face. She then collected food and toiletry items for children who might have to stay the night in a CPS office. Now, when a child has been removed from their home due to abuse or neglect, they will have some comfort while CPS finds a place for them to stay. Emily, mom Allison and brother Connor delivered the items last week to Dallas CASA, which provides volunteer advocates for abused and neglected children.
